The one I use is from Teresa Parker, and came from a very early posting on Gail's Swap. We love the flavor and they are great for decorating.

Here's my question: If I wanted to add loft and tenderness to these, could I add a bit of baking powder to the recipe? Would that help them puff up a bit? If so, how much do you think I should use?

As for tenderness, could I sub all or part of the shortening with butter?

I plan to experiment with this at Christmas, but I thought it would be good to ask the experts here for some advice first.
